Why so serious? For the first time in maybe ever, we have a Joker action figure who isn’t smiling. And he’s so lifelike you’re going to wonder what you did to piss him off that badly.
Knowing Hot Toys, they will eventually make every member of the Suicide Squad movie team, and probably every version of Harley Quinn they can think of. But they’re kicking things off with an exclusive Joker, all restrained in his Arkham Asylum straitjacket. You can undo the straps if you really need to get a look at his tattoos underneath so badly that you’d risk giving the maniac a free hand.
Coming with a chair and playing cards, the Joker is described as a Toy Fair exclusive, though we’re not sure just yet which Toy Fairs will debut the figure. Presumably a few in Asia, and possibly San Diego Comic-Con, but we’ll have to wait and see. No doubt a more elaborate Joker is coming to online stores everywhere, but this is what an exclusive should be: a unique version to appeal to the collector who wants special variants. Dig that Jared Leto face sculpt, and keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn’t start mailing rats and condoms to all the other toys in your collection.
Check out all the official publicity stills below to see what you can make this Joker do. Just remember that any time you think you’re manipulating him, he’s probably the one manipulating you.
Will you let-o this toy be yours? Got a place to be puddin’ him on the shelf? Don’t just clown around—tell us in comments!
